These spores are the red and green things spread throughout the fourth mission in the first R-Type. There are 5 special spores hidden throughout the level, but remember that they are the same size as the normal ones so they may be hard to hit. Plus most are in hard to reach places, so I recommend playing on infinite mode, so that you can die and move into position while you are invincible. If you manage to hit one, you'll get a quick message on the screen, showing how many you have found, and the hidden spore will be replaced with a red flag. You don't need to get these all in one run, as they are accumulative. Although the red flag will no longer be there, when you return to the level.

As mentioned in the other solution, the first two hidden spores are in the beginning half of the level and the other three are in the big spore mess located right before the boss. Here are the locations of the 5 hidden spores.

1) When you first start the level, you'll notice two columns of spores. They might be a bit hard to make out, because two enemies will quickly enter and start filling up the screen with more spores. However if you pay attention you should be able to tell which are the original ones. The first spore is located at the bottom of the second column.

2) The second is located right after the first opening at the bottom of the screen. After the opening, there will be a raised area of sorts followed by a flat section. Where the raised and flat section meet, there is a short stack of spores. The hidden one is at the bottom of that stack.

3) You'll find the third at the beginning of the area completely filled with spores. You'll know what area I'm talking about, when you see it. The spore is located at the left of the first opening in the top.

4) This one is found almost directly below the third, so if you aren't fast enough you might have to start another game just to get this one. It is located at the left of the first opening on the bottom.

5) The final spore is right at the end of the spore filled area. It is at the bottom where the scenery ends, when the floor opens up completely. To be more specific it is on the very bottom row, about 8 columns from the end of the spore area.
